I think the idea is that, just as 'hacking' the phones would be considered the 'back door', legitimate access (whatever that amounts to) is the 'front door'.

If we can keep the snickering to a minimum, one goes in the back door to escape notice. The analogy more-or-less work because once you find you've been broken into, you tend to make sure everything is locked-up tight
